We are forf&aate enough to possess the folk tale, now published in this 
booklet, in the three main dialects of Irish, though it be in a local form 
of each, viz., ilí ha mtop\é*45 (Béarra), bpÓAgAib éi|\cAnn (North Mayo), 
bpéágóip éi]\cAnn (Farney). 

The longest and best form of the story is undoubtedly bpéA^Aib 
éi|\eAnn, which I published with notes in the "Gaelic Journal." I am in 
hopes that this will soon be re-published as a booklet also. 

Next in length comes 1lí nA mbpeAg, with which we are at present, 
concerned, obtained as is now well known, by the late Patrick O'Lcary 
in the Berehaven district. It cannot at all compare in length or interest 
with the North Connacht bpéA^Aib éip&arm, in comparison with which 
its length might be almost described as infinitesimal; yet the exaggerations, 
or rather impossibilities, that occur in it are just as remarkable, and it may 
be taken as a good specimen of the dialect of Béarra. 

The shortest version is bpeAgoipeipeAnn, published by me in " SjóaI- 
Aiúe V e ^pnnunje " of which an improved edition is now going through 
the press. This form, which is only a little shorter than Hi tiA mbpeAg, 
is also a good one, showing some of the Northern usage at its best. 

I heard also a Tyrone version summarised for me by a native of Glenelly. 
Strange to say, it was nccrest to the North Connacht form of the tale, 
especially as regards the abstraction of the oats up to heaven by St. Peter! 

All the published versions of this folk-tale have now been dealt with 

by the present editor. What a parodox it is that he, with the most honest
